  2. 2. Price  The price is the amount a customer pays for the product.  It is determined by a number of factors including market share, competition, material costs, product identity and the customer's perceived value of the product.  The business may increase or decrease the price of product if other stores have the same product.

  14. 14. Pricing Strategies Pricing should take into account the following factors:  Fixed and variable costs.  Competition  Company objectives  Proposed positioning strategies.  Target group and willingness to pay.
  15. 15. Marketing Mix (4P’s) Pricing Pricing Strategies Penetration Skimming Competition Product Line Bundle Psychological  Pricing is the only mix which generates a turnover for the organisation. The remaining 3p’s are the variable cost for the organisation.  It costs to produce and design a product, it costs to distribute a product and costs to promote it.  Price must support these elements of the mix.  Pricing is difficult and must reflect supply and demand relationship.
  16. 16. Pricing Strategies  Penetration pricing: Where the organisation sets a low price to increase sales and market share.  Skimming pricing: The organisation sets an initial high price and then slowly lowers the price to make the product available to a wider market. The objective is to skim profits of the market layer by layer.  Competition pricing: Setting a price in comparison with competitors.
  17. 17.  Product Line Pricing: Pricing different products within the same product range at different price points. An example would be a video manufacturer offering different video recorders with different features at different prices.  Bundle Pricing: The organisation bundles a group of products at a reduced price.  Psychological pricing: The seller here will consider the psychology of price and the positioning of price within the market place. The seller will therefore charge 99p instead £1 or $199 instead of $200.
  18. 18.  Premium pricing: The price set is high to reflect the exclusiveness of the product. An example of products using this strategy would be Harrods, first class airline services.  Optional pricing: The organisation sells optional extras along with the product to maximise its turnover. This strategy is used commonly within the car industry.
